    Whatever it is, I'm sure that it's not worth getting excited about.

    how to register American coins from Mexico

    May be referring to having to send submissions via registered mail? Just a guess.

    Bidding in a Coin Auction

    You've definitely got good taste, because that coin sure is a standout. I'm starting to think that you should have bid a little bit higher!

    Bidding in a Coin Auction

    Sorry for your loss, Physics-fan. It really was a pretty piece of gold, but I'd be willing to bet that there's a better one out there, just for you.

    It's amazing what a brain that's being kept alive in a jar can do.

    2018 Awards

    Congratulations to all of the winners. I'm hoping to, some day, start a set of my own.
  11. I just can't stand it when a seller doesn't take the time to package an item properly. It's really disappointing to see an item that you've searched for, spent good money on, and then waited patiently for, get destroyed because of careless packing. It's like once they get your money, they could care less what happens, afterwards. What they do not seem to understand, is that the item is still theirs until the buyer accepts, and is satisfied with it.
  12. I hope that the seller does right by you, Zebo. If he refuses to, maybe post his seller name, here, so that we all know who NOT to buy from?
  13. Send him a link to this thread, and then see what happens. If he still refuses your offer, neg. him.
  14. You're welcome. I had to pause the video to see the grade. Really nice coin.
